25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, DAY #14: Purple Flurries Gift Card Holder...

Today's 25 Days of Christmas project is an oldie, but a goodie!  It is a gift card holder Jenni designed that she cased from another gift card holder she did a couple of years ago:  Ornamental Decoration.  There is a FREE mini tutorial following the supply list.

We used the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Ink Pad from the Holiday Catalog for the watermarked images.  It is especially nice on dark colored card stock.  Since I used a light color, it doesn't show up very well in the photo, but it is a very pretty silvery, shimmery watermark.  And, yes, we used the Snow Flurry Die again!  What can I say?  I love it and it is not carrying over, so I have to use it all I can before the end of the month!  :o)  I colored the Rhinestone Jewels purple with a Sharpie.  Can't wait until I have the LARGE ones coming out in the Spring Catalog.  Those will be FABULOUS - you can never have enough bling!

Here it is opened up.  I left the gift card out of it, so that you could see the punch cut-outs.

  1. Cut card stock to  4 ¼” x 11”.
  2. With the card stock in the landscape position, score @ 3”, 5 ½” and 8”.
  3. Apply Sticky Strip to section #2 as shown above.
  4. Fold the card on the 5-1/2" score line.  Remove Sticky Strip liners and adhere sections #2 and 3 together to seal them shut.
  5. Use the Word Window Punch to punch the center flap twice side by side (about half of the Word Window opening should have card stock).
  6. In the center, punch again with the 3/4" Circle Punch (again about half way down).
  7. Cut 1" x 7-1/2" strip for the belly band.
  8. Fold the strip around the card and adhere to itself (not the card) placing the seam where it will be covered by your punch if it's big enough to be hidden.  If making snowflakes like we did, it will show, so put the seam on the back of the card.
